TENA ProSkin brings incontinence care and skin health together

With 50 years of expertise in caring for the elderly and those living with incontinence, TENA is committed to finding ways to improve quality of care. We understand that maintaining skin health is an essential part of managing incontinence. The result of our extensive research and innovative test  methods, TENA ProSkin is a range of incontinence care products designed for fragile elderly skin. TENA ProSkin has been verified together with skin health experts at the University of Southampton and University College London, and is endorsed by the Skin Health Alliance.

What is TENA ProSkin?

The TENA ProSkin range includes both absorbing and skin care products designed to provide support to maintain skin health when caring for someone with incontinence. Cleansing products ensure that elderly skin is gently cleansed, while the barrier cream provides the skin with an extra protective layer. At the same time absorbent product designs reduce moisture and help maintain the skin’s natural microclimate. To ensure our products do what we say they do, one of the tests we have developed is the TENA skin moisture test. This unique testing method measures the interaction between product and skin, and has been endorsed by the University of Southampton.

Developed by our experts to meet your needs

We’ve spent a lot of time working with healthcare professionals with the aim of improving the skin health benefits of our products. Ultimately we believe this will help provide better care for the elderly. Our research shows that four main issues affect the skin health of those with incontinence: length of time of contact with incontinence products; repeated use; wetness levels; and skin sensitivity. Fragile ageing skin needs special attention and the TENA ProSkin range has been developed by our 300-strong research and development team to care for its specific needs.

Centering individual wellbeing

When you use TENA ProSkin, you’re not just managing incontinence, you’re actively helping to keep skin healthy. And this makes life for those with incontinence more comfortable and more dignified. It can also enable carers to make more time for other aspects of care.

Centering Individual Wellbeing

Three steps to skin health

TENA has developed a three step skin health solution for those living with incontinence. Our years of expertise have shown us that these three steps are the most important principles in maintaining natural skin health:

Keep it dry

Keep it dry using TENA ProSkin absorbing products with FeelDry Advanced™ functionality

Keep it clean

Keep it clean with TENA ProSkin washcloths and cleansing creams

Keep it protected

Keep it protected by applying TENA ProSkin barrier or protective creams

TENA ProSkin combines these three elements in one incontinence care product range specially designed for elderly, fragile skin.

The next level of protection

Our TENA ProSkin absorbent products offer triple protection for dryness, softness and leakage security. FeelDry Advanced™ quickly absorbs liquid away from the surface, keeping the skin dry. Absorbing products work in tandem to promote skin health with our cleansing and protective products, which help to prevent irritation.

Your skin safety assurance

We developed TENA ProSkin to meet the challenge of improving skin health in the elderly and to better support health care professionals. For added peace of mind, the Skin Health Alliance has endorsed all TENA ProSkin products so you can be sure they are always skin-friendly and meet the highest standards.
